Hi! I'm Stogie!
Who We Are
The two loves of my life, Johnson, a Sheltie/Golden mix and Bogart, a loveable St. Bernard (both rescue dogs), died within 18 months of each other. Johnson was 16.5 years old and Bogart was 10.5 years old when they went to Doggie Heaven. Needless to say, my heart was broken. We all know the only way to try and heal a broken heart is to get another furry child. I adopted Stogie from 4Paws4U4Ever on September 29, 2012.
I was looking for a way in which Stogie could wear something that would honor Johnson’s and Bogart’s memories, but I could not find anything on the internet anywhere. Once day over a glass of wine (or 3), my BFF Carla and I were brainstorming ideas on the best way to make a Tribute collar and the concept of Concha Collar was born!
Our mission was to create the most unique collar in the world in which every pet parent could design a collar that showcased their interests, their pet’s personality or a tribute to a family member that has crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. In addition, as crazy animal lovers, Carla and I are passionate about giving back to shelters and rescues, which is why we have our Concha Cookies program.
